Director of dealer relations - Texas
Originally a trained welder and metal fabricator, Colby Donaldson owned and operated a performance auto restoration business before becoming the record-breaking runner-up on CBS’ hit television show "Survivor: The Australian Outback" and later going on to produce and host the History Channel’s “Top Shot” – a grueling competition show that pitted some of the country’s top marksmen against each other in head to head shooting challenges.
Upon returning to Texas, Colby was recruited by an oil & gas start-up company located in the Permian Basin to head up business development and sales team recruitment/management. In 10 short months, Colby took the new Permian branch of the service company from zero market share to generating over half a million dollars per month in sales and rentals during the Summer of 2015 – all while the price of oil continued to plummet.
Colby graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Business Marketing. He is married with an eight-year old daughter and proudly calls Austin, TX home.
